It's open! Joplin shelter opens pop-up cat lounge

Cat lounge opens in Joplin

JOPLIN, Mo. - "Tiny Tigers Lounge & Adoption Center" opens its doors today.

The temporary, pop-up store is located in the Northpark Mall in Joplin, Missouri. People can pay $5 to hang out with adoptable furry felines for 30 minutes.

The Joplin Humane Society plans to accomplish their mission of finding furrever homes for adoptable cats and kittens by offering community cat lovers a place to meet these sweet felines outside of the shelter environment and also offer a relaxing place where the cats will receive regular human interaction, which will result in raising their chances of adoption. 

They are expecting lots of kitty lovers, so reservations can be made in front of the store starting July 5th at 11:30 am. Its open hours will be Friday & Saturday, noon – 7pm and Sunday, noon – 6pm throughout the month of July.
